In my 20s, I really didn’t honor the dream. I stayed awake, slept in late, regardless of any sleep hygiene (that wasn’t even in my vocabulary). Now in my 40s, having a nighttime routine is critical to a good night’s rest and a successful day the next day. I took my sleep regimen seriously this year and invested in a complete room redesign with a custom bed base, mattress, silk eye maskand new bedding. This dream makeover required some serious research on the best linen sheets because this time around, he was determined to create a Zen bedroom that prioritized and honored rest.
So if this sounds like you too, and you’re ready to create a az-inducing dressing table, read on for the best linen sheets you can buy according to our team of trendsetters.

Now I’ve gotten used to the amazement that happens when I tell my friends that my bedding is all from Casaluna at Target because the 100% washed linen sheets and duvet look so, well, expensive. These sheets are soft and breathable, incredibly important for someone like me who tends to sleep warm. And while I currently have the white set on my bed, I’m tempted to swap it out for one of the brand’s other soft neutral shades for fall. They have an incredible price, why not? – Camille Styles, Editor-in-Chief
My husband is very picky about soft sheets and I had to convince him to try linen sheets for the summer. I’ve been sweating and needed to make a change. Fortunately we found Cultiver. Linen is super soft and the color options are amazing. We settled on the beige duvet and white sheets, the perfect refreshment for the summer. – Brandy Joy Smith, Maternity Contributor

As an Australian, I love supporting my homegrown brands and Cultiver makes it easy to do. Your linen sheets are made from 100% European linen so you know you sleep with quality designed to last. I invested in a set of white linen sheets years ago and they are just as soft as when I bought them. Many other sheets have worn down over time, but my Cultiver sheets have stood the test of time. I recently upgraded to blush set and I love the subdued pink hue that feels like a raised neutral. When it comes to cost per sleep, this is my best option. – Sacha Strebe, Deputy Editor
As a connoisseur of beauty (who takes skincare very seriously), I always sleep on a silk pillowcase. But the look of silk doesn’t always fit the style of my bed, especially since my preference has always been linen. So when I saw that Cultiver made a folding silk / linen pillowcase, they sold me instantly. I mean, it’s cool, really. Silk maintains the high standard of your linen: soft, thick and breathable. – Sacha Strebe, Deputy Editor
I switched to linen sheet sets almost two years ago and am so glad I did. I am obsessed with my Bed Threads sheet set. One, because the color is gorgeous (I used to be an all-white bedding set like a girl, but having a bright, colorful set has really made my space feel special and cozy); and two, because the fabric is amazing. I feel like the whole has gotten softer with each wash and I love that it doesn’t feel too heavy at night. Run, don’t walk to get that set of bedding threads. Trust me! – Suruchi Avasthi, Food Editor
I agree with Suruchi: these linen sheets are so soft! I have the oatmeal and white set and it is the perfect shade combination for my neutral bedroom. I’m talking about great cozy and laid-back vibes. This is also another Australian brand, so of course I am also very proud to sleep with a quality brand from my home, Australia. – Sacha Strebe, Deputy Editor
After sleeping on luxurious linen sheets during a hotel stay, I made a commitment to myself that I would only wrap myself in bedding at night in the future. Percal who? I stopped by the parachute, picked up some nice off-white sheets (along with some wool dryer balls, which also changed my life), and I’ve never looked back. They’re lighter than air for sleeping, and I appreciate a fabric that looks just as good (if not better) when it’s a little tousled. – Caitlin Clark, Contributing Editor
There is nothing softer than these delicious linen sheets. They are perfectly wrinkled, decadently soft, and look beautifully worn. They are also incredibly high quality and durable, which is a must when you have a dog that sleeps with you. Although they are definitely wasteful, I have never regretted the investment. These sheets are incredibly luxurious and at the same time, they look casually cool. I’m a big fan of neutral tones, but I’m constantly tempted by limited-edition seasonal shades. – Lourdes Avila Uribe, contributing editor
If you are looking for an organic linen sheet set, look no further than Coyuchi. This is a brand that honors quality and sustainability. Their materials are pure and minimally processed, and their products adhere to strict standards like Fair Trade USA, respecting the yarn, the manufacturers, and of course you! It is a true paradise to sleep in these sheets. Even Athena Calderone by EyeSwoon is a fan. – Sacha Strebe, Deputy Editor
